Few ancient works have been as influential as the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and emperor of Rome (A.D. 161–180). A series of spiritual exercises filled with wisdom, practical guidance, and profound understanding of human behavior, it remains one of the greatest works of spiritual and ethical reflection ever written. Marcus’s insights and advice—on everything from living in the world to coping with adversity and interacting with others—have made the Meditations required reading for statesmen and philosophers alike, while generations of ordinary readers have responded to the straightforward intimacy of his style. For anyone who struggles to reconcile the demands of leadership with a concern for personal integrity and spiritual well-being, the Meditations remains as relevant now as it was two thousand years ago.
In Gregory Hays’s new translation—the first in thirty-five years—Marcus’s thoughts speak with a new immediacy. In fresh and unencumbered English, Hays vividly conveys the spareness and compression of the original Greek text. Never before have Marcus’s insights been so directly and powerfully presented.

With Ed Servais, Creighton University Head Coach; 3-time Missouri Valley Conference Coach of the Year; NCAA Record .984 Team Fielding Percentage. From the weight room to the field, Ed Servais and his team provide a candid look into what has made the Creighton University baseball program a consistent championship contender. Coach Servais delivers two days of live fall practices that will improve your players' and provide you with structure, organization and a competitive drill progression series to incorporate into your practices. Day One: Coach Servais and his team go through an intense and progressive team and individual practice session divided into five main phases: The Stretch, Baserunning, a concentrated Throwing Program, Team Defense, Individual Defense, and an Offensive Team Workout. His "progression style" practice focuses on time efficiency and forcing the players to make quick decisions on the fly. Coach Servais' throwing program progresses from the ground up and isolates every element of the throw, proper mechanics and places a high concentration on accuracy and keeping the "ball off the ground." This is the basis of his defensive philosophy. In the 40-minute Team Defense segment, Servais' team demonstrates high intensity drills designed to minimize your opponent's running game and small ball strategies while maximizing your team's effectiveness at outfield communication, cuts, relays, double play feeds and pivots. This session also includes Servais' combo drill (utilizing the whole team); situation drills that feature game-like sequences challenge your players baseball skills and their mental awareness, individual group progressions for catchers, middle and corner infielders, outfielders; and a timing drill. Day Two: The day begins with an inside look at Creighton's strength training program. Led by Creighton's Strength Coach, the team performs a series of baseball-specific exercises designed to improve strength and explosiveness. 280 minutes (2 DVDs).
